"He loves asparagus. I do NOT. I call it "spare a gut". However, we both loved this recipe. I MAY have been converted but only when prepared this way. The seasoning does it."

"I cooked this over medium-high heat and the mushrooms browned beautifully making a lot more attractive dish than the one pictured and the flavor withthe thyme and lemon was awesome. This would make a great side dish for just about any grilled protein."
